Need a Father's Day present? Two words: LEGO stadium

If any Michigan and Nebraska football fans are looking for a Father’s Day present — and you happen to have $400 or $1,200 burning a hole in your wallet — there’s a gift that is certain to impress every Wolverine and Husker dad. It’s on Etsy, and it’s an incredible replica of Michigan Stadium and Memorial Stadium, made entirely out of LEGOS. The replicas come in two sizes: 15×15 inches ($400) and 30×30 inches ($1,200). Want to buy one? Visit the Etsy.com page. [ MORE: Phil Steele releases his 2014 Preseason All-Big Ten Team ] h/t: LostLettermen.com Here’s Michigan Stadium:

Photo: PSU fan gets Beaver Stadium groom's cake

Penn State fans will love the groom’s cake a Nittany Lion fan had at his wedding last Saturday. It was a replica of Beaver Stadium, and the scoreboard (speaking of which, look at the team’s new video board) displayed the date: 5-31-14. Check out the cake in this post. Looks like Beaver Stadium, doesn’t it? Yes, it is missing the S Zone, but whatever. Every seat is full, too, much to new coach James Franklin’s approval. Probably nitpicking here, but I would have asked for a White Out. There aren’t many more picturesque sights than a White Out at Beaver

Purdue to put student photos on helmet vs. Iowa

Hey, Purdue fans, want to see your face on the Purdue helmet this year? You can make it happen. Really. Purdue announced Wednesday that students who buy a VIP card (PDF) by June 10 will have their face featured in a collage inside the “P” logo for the “Social Media Game” on Sept. 27 vs. Iowa.

Only question is, will other teams copy the idea? Or, maybe, do the same with

More impressive: Peppers' speed, Bosa's backflip?

It’s no shock to learn that Big Ten athletes are physically gifted. We see it throughout the seasons, especially on fall Saturdays. But, sometimes, it’s what they do off the gridiron that makes us realize just how impressive these guys are. Michigan incoming freshman Jabrill Peppers and Ohio State rising sophomore Joey Bosa are the latest examples. The former impressed with his breakaway speed at a state track meet, and the latter flat-out showed off with a two-year-old clip of him doing a backflip in the weight room. Watch both below, and tell us which one is the most impressive

Video: Ohio State's Joey Bosa nails standing backflip

Remember Braylon Edwards’ standing backflip following Michigan’s 2004 win over Minnesota? It was impressive. Edwards went on to do an “easier” flip in the NFL. It’s one thing for a receiver to do a backflip, but it’s a completely different thing when a defensive lineman does it. In a J.J. Watt-esque gym video, Ohio State’s Joey Bosa made a standing backflip look way too easy. Update: the video is from two years ago but was just posted.

Video: Jabrill Peppers wows in 100-meter dash

If any Michigan fan wasn’t head-over-heels excited about heralded recruit Jabrill Peppers, the video of the defensive back’s speedy 100-meter dash at last Friday’s state meet should do it. Peppers, a five-star recruit out of New Jersey, used his incredible breakaway speed to defend his crown, with a time of 10.52 seconds. Watch Peppers’ speed in this post. [ MORE: Ever see a DE do a standing backflip? Check out Joey Bosa! ] You don’t even have to be a Michigan fan to enjoy this speed. Plain and simple, it’s easy to see why Michigan fans are so excited about

NFL.com: Raheem Mostert, college's fastest player

Forget about the fastest player in the Big Ten, NFL.com’s Bryan Fischer ranked Purdue speedster Raheem Mostert as the nation’s fastest player. So much for the narrative that the Big Ten has no speed, huh? Regardless of conference affiliation, Mostert can fly. He’s shown his speed on the football field (see video above), but he’s done most of his damage in track and field.

Video: Wildcats get fancy in uniform feature

Northwestern has no shortage of uniform combinations. Under Armour revamped the team’s look prior to the 2012 season, and last year it introduced an all-white design. There’s countless helmets to go along with the three different jerseys and pants (white, black and purple). Basically, there’s no telling what Northwestern will wear from one Saturday to the next. Players love it. And, most importantly, recruits love it. Based on the Northwestern YouTube video above, we may see some new combinations in 2014. In the video, linebacker Collin Ellis says, “We’ve never done this before,” while wearing a black top and white

Photo: Ex-Terp Torrey Smith is excited for Big Ten

The future is bright for the Big Ten. So bright, in fact, you might need some shades. Former Maryland receiver and current NFL star Torrey Smith is excited about his school’s move, and he posted a photo to Instagram to prove it. The shot features Smith holding his young child, with both wearing Maryland glasses that feature the school logo on the right lens and the B1G logo on the left lens. #ThinkB1G Terp Nation Forever A post shared by Torrey Smith (@torreysmithwr) on Jun 2, 2014 at 11:36am PDT First off, adorable kid, Torrey.

Photos: Spartans show off possible new uniform designs

Last year during its run to the Big Ten and Rose Bowl titles, Michigan State unveiled a few new uniform designs. Like, the all-green look it wore for the Big Ten title game and Rose Bowl Game. Well, if the football models on display at the team’s complex are any indication, the Spartans could have some new designs in 2014. See photos of the uniforms in this post. [ MORE: Facebook.com/SpartanNation: See a gallery of the uniforms ] These are nice. I especially like the all-white uniform. This is a design the Spartans wore prior to their latest Nike remodel
